Just curious why the latest eclipse-platform in FC6 update-testing
requires lucene-devel in addition to lucene?
ships a lucene-src jar that we wanted to symlink to.
So our lucene package grew a lucene-devel which contains lucene-src to
which we can symlink from the Eclipse SDK.
When I tried to update this morning, I got hit by the fact that
is 1.9.1 in jpackage and 1.4.3 in Fedora, and jpackage doesn't have a
separate -devel subpackage; had to force-downgrade and exclude lucene
from jpackage to make this work.
So you've been using the JPackage lucene with Fedora Eclipse?
Interesting. We don't usually recommend mixing repos like that due to
possible API differences between versions of things like lucene. Did
the Eclipse help system indexing work for you? That's where it uses
I've bugzilla'd the out-of-date lucene in Fedora:
We'll have to make sure the new version works with Eclipse. ISTR it not
compiling against it but I guess we should investigate. Upstream is
reluctant to move their dependencies forward like this.
